another incarnation of the new True North custom. I got in March
and rode it fixed for 500 km or so...
it's gear time, roads are dry and the Parkway is smoooth.
shifting duties are handles by Campy Chorus, with an FSA crank,
(compact double 'cause i like to spinnnnn). Wheels are Ksyrium ES's
wrapped by Grand Bois Cypres 700x30c's, saddle is Selle San Marco,
Richard Sachs edition perched on a *gasp* carbon Pave seatpost from
length and rise is being honed, and when I have the right reach
and rise, then Hugh will braze me a stem to match the lugs.
are a bit of a bodge at the moment, as I designed it around standard
reach and _thought_ I had a pair of the DiaCompe a5000, but it turns
out they are two fronts, so for now the front has the proper lookig
single pivot, while the rear has a cheapo Gnashbar dual pivot....
there she be and she gonna get her inaugural shake down tomorrow
on a 120 km loop with some nasty steep gravel climbs! My fav!
who just rid
off road with his seven yr old daughter on the back of the xtracycle!
